jumping on the green bandwagon

i made my first green monster smoothie yesterday and it turned out delicious. i've been reading about these for months and finally got out the blender and tried a recipe of my own.

i included:

1 cup almond milk
2 handfuls spinach
2 stalks celery
1 small handful of broccoli
1 pear
handful cherries
1 scoop chocolate protein powder

i'll be honest it wasn't the BEST tasting drink i've ever had in my life. but i think with a little more tweaking green smoothies will become a staple in my diet. i have a hard time getting all of my fruits and vegetables in a given day- and its usually at the end of the day i realize i'm way below my veggie intake, etc. hopefully these help me out a little bit. i stocked up on frozen fruits at the grocery store last week, so i'll let you guys know which i think taste best as this experiment continues!



  1. ACK! I totally could not do it. How dit it taste, really?!?

  2. I am all about Almond Milk lately, but I won't lie, that smoothie sounds disgusting. HAHA! :o)
